Tokyo to Ho Chi Minh By Bicycle An autobiographical and reflective account of traveling from Tokyo to Ho Chi Minh on a bicycle.

14th-18th Nov - Tokyo to Osaka

So I was faced with a really long tunnel to get to the boat in Osaka. With only 30 minutes before I was supposed to be there and bicycles forbidden I was faced with a grim proposition. Run the gamut or face missing the boat. So as I descended into the bowls of the tunnel the police descended on me like vultures and after a face off decided to put the bike in the van and help me out. Here's one of the guys who helped. A serious case of Ichinichi ichizen.

Very nearly Robert! the nearest equivalent translation would be "one good deed for the day"
